Detailed scoring or question scoring?
Detailed scoring allocates students partial credit when they do not achieve 100% in a question and is the default scoring system since Version 5.
For example, if a student correctly enters 6 out of 8 notes in a Melodic Dictation question, a score of 75% will be awarded, rather than a score of zero.
It’s very common for a student to have a high detailed score and a low question score; in some topics it’s easy to get one small thing incorrect in just about every question!
We highly recommend using detailed scoring – it’s fairer for your students and is a more accurate reflection of their progress.
